The Hereward Relay
Sunday 25th November 2007
Alex Downie

The Hereward Relay, 25.11.07
This tracks across some terrific Fen scenery from Peterborough to Ely, in 4 stages, officially of 6.1,11.6,10.3 and 9.6miles respectively, though garmins would indicate longer distances on stage 1[6.5], and stage 3[almost 11]. The second leg must be singled out for its quintessentially fennish vistas, so it allows you to concentrate on your running. The fourth leg contains a characterful muddy track near its finish. This year, conditions were relatively dry, and we were largely blessed with that rarest of things a tail wind. C+C had 7 teams operating and pride of place has to go to the Stairway to Heaven girls team [the 2 katies, meinou and kim] who were the very fastest female team and 37th overall. [ it is even rumoured that led zeppelin sang that song specially to commemorate this result at their recent concert in o2.] Fastest C+C team running away with it, in fact were the Runaways[27th], though not far behind were the Ratpack[34th], and running them desperately close in 35th were that ragbag collection of gritty old men, the NotFadeAways, who really lived up to their name. But what happened to our second-leggers? They all lost places and Paul D managed to GET lost! So what was going on a sinister second leg curse on C+Cers? Or did they all stop to admire the umm........ scenery? Was it a collective bout of Fenland Madness? Only they can say.
